Welcome to the Festival of Trees of Beaufort, SC

Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees, benefiting Friends of Caroline Hospice, is Beaufort, South Carolina's premier holiday event. In addition to a showcase of beautifully decorated trees, Festival of Trees includes a grand opening reception with silent auction, a gourmet and gift shop, holiday barbequed Boston butt sale, a 5K Jingle Jog and daily lunches. During these remarkable five days, the gym is transformed into a holiday wonderland, where simply stepping through the door puts you in the holiday spirit. The festival is held at the Charles Lind Brown Neighborhood Activity Center, 1001 Hamar Street.

In the past 24 years, Festival of Trees has raised over $950,000 for Friends of Caroline Hospice. The Festival is the largest fundraiser for Friends of Caroline Hospice, with 100% of these funds going directly to them to help continue to provide free care and volunteer services offering hope, encouragement and comfort to our friends and neighbors who live with life-threatening illness. Since the needs Friends of Caroline Hospice addresses are not affected by the economy, it is vitally important we maintain our level of support to them, and your assistance has enabled us to do so.
